WHAT IS THE OPEN
WEB PLATFORM?
The Open Web Platform is a full-fledged
programming environment for rich,
interactive, cross-platform applications.
IS THE
CORNERSTONE
IN OTHER WORDS, IT’S
THE WEB WITH:
• APIS: Geolocation, gyroscopes, near-field communications
(NFC), cameras, address book, linked data, …
• Rich media: Audio and video, vectorial images, graphics,
animations, high-quality typography, …
• Cross-device: screens of all sizes, touch, keyboards, voice,
vibrations, beeps, …
• Communications: client-server, real-time, peer-to-peer,
sockets, …

THE PROMISE IS
UNIQUE
REALITY CHECK
• Reuters: “Critics say that HTML 5's one-size-fits-all approach
will mean average experience across the board at the expense of
excellence on individual platforms.” – October 2012
• Appcelerator/IDC: “Appcelerator and IDC surveyed
5,526 developers … disappointment with nearly every aspect of
HTML5…” – Q3 2012
• Mark Zuckerberg / Facebook: “…betting too
much on HTML5 as opposed to native... because it just wasn't
there. And it's not that HTML5 is bad. I'm actually, on long-term,
really excited about it. [We] actually have more people on a daily
basis using mobile Web Facebook than we have using our iOS or
Android apps combined. So mobile Web is a big thing for us.”
WHAT DO EARLY
MAJORITY SAY?
• Close the gap with native
– Improve Performance, capability, packaging, payment,
discovery, system-level APIs
• Achieve broad interoperability
– Increase testing, libraries, modularization, developer
outreach
• Meet reqs of adjacent industries
– Increase participation from industries most dramatically
affected by new devices, connectivity, mobility, social
TO GO FROM THE
EARLY MAJORITY TO
THE FULL MAJORITY…
